Are you familiar with the concept of T-shaped talent?

Tracy St. Dic, the Global Head of Talent at Zapier, recently joined the HR Impact Show to discuss the concept of building teams with T-shaped talent.

T-shaped talent refers to individuals who are highly skilled subject matter experts in one area (the vertical line of the T) and have a broad range of skills, knowledge, and experience (the horizontal line of the T).

Tracy explained that T-shaped talent is optimal for organizations that require adaptability, collaboration, and innovation. She also shared how Zapier focuses on hiring and developing T-shaped talent, cultivating a mindset of flexibility, and rewarding employees who demonstrate T-shaped skills.
